Iceland – Northern Lights

Condições Gerais

The present program/online catalog is the informative document in which the current general conditions are included. They constitute, in the absence of a separate document, the travel contract.
The information is binding for the agency, except for some of the present conditions:

For each reservation the following will be charged:

  • Portugal: 15€ (fifteen euros);
  • Remaining Countries: 30€ (thirty euros).

Alteration Expenses:

For each alteration (names, dates, type of apartment or room, travel, etc) : 50€ (fifty euros). Please note that the acceptance of such changes depends on the acceptance by the respective suppliers.


The client must have their personal or family documentation in good order (identity card, military documentation, authorization for minors, visas, vaccination certificates, and any other documents that may be required). The agency disclaims any responsibility for visa refusal or the client's denial of entry into a foreign country. The client is solely responsible for any costs incurred as a result of such a situation.

If the travel suppliers involved allow it, whenever a customer who is registered for a particular trip wishes to change their registration to another trip or the same trip with a different departure date, or any other changes, they must pay a fee as alteration expenses. However, if the change takes place 21 days or less before the departure date of the trip for which the customer is registered, or if the service providers do not accept the change, the customer will be subject to the expenses and charges specified under the “cancellation (termination)” section.

Once the trip has started, if a request is made to change the contracted services for reasons not related to the agency (e.g., extending the number of nights of stay, changing the flight), the prices of the touristic services may not correspond to those published on the website that prompted the contract.


The customer may transfer their registration by being replaced by another person who meets all the required conditions for the trip, provided that they inform the selling agency at least seven days in advance and such transfer is possible under the applicable air transport regulations. In the case of cruises and air travel, the prescribed period will be fifteen days in advance.

The transfer of the registration makes both the transferor and the transferee jointly responsible for the payment of the trip price and any additional charges incurred.



Whenever there are external reasons that justify it, the organizing agency may change the order of the itineraries, modify the departure times, or substitute any of the planned hotels with others of similar category and location. The agency must inform the client of such changes as soon as they become aware of them.


When the tour is dependent on a minimum number of participants the Agency reserves the right to cancel the organized tour if the number of participants reached is less than the minimum. In such cases, the Client will be informed in writing of the cancellation within 15 (fifteen) days.


The prices in the program are based on the costs of services and exchange rates in effect on the date of printing of the program, and are therefore subject to change resulting from variations in the cost of transportation or fuel, duties, taxes, fees, and exchange rate fluctuations up to 20 days prior to the date of departure.


Once the tour has begun, no refund is due for services not used by the client due to unforeseeable circumstances or for reasons attributable to the client, except for refunds by the respective suppliers. Failure to provide services foreseen in the travel program for reasons attributable to the organizing agency and if it is not possible to replace them with equivalent ones, entitles the client receive a refund for the price difference between the originally anticipated services and the services actually provided.




If, prior to the start of the journey and due to circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency, it becomes unable to fulfill any essential service included in the travel program, the client has the right to cancel the trip and immediately receive a refund of all amounts paid, or alternatively, accept a modification and possible price variation.

If the aforementioned circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency result in the cancellation of the trip, the client may choose to participate in another organized trip of equivalent price. If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

i) Such cancellation implies that the client is responsible for the payment of all charges arising from the beginning of the fulfillment of the contract and their withdrawal, as well as a percentage that can go up to 15% of the price of the trip.

ii) If applicable, the client will be refunded the difference between the amount paid and the aforementioned amounts.

iii) The cancellation of travel services/organized trips whose reservation has been made using the voucher issued under Decree-Law No. 17/2020 of April 23rd is subject to a cancellation fee equal to the price of the service, in order to prevent simulated or fraudulent reservations made solely with the intention of anticipating the receipt of the voucher-entitled values.

i) Being immediately refunded all amounts paid;

ii) Optionally, choose to participate in another organized tour and be refunded for any difference in price.

Marvel at the magic of the Northern Lights in Iceland.

Active volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, beaches, glaciers, fjords, Vikings, Game of Thrones. Adventure, culture, traditions, and legends. Not to mention, of course, the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. What more reasons do we need to accept the challenge of visiting Iceland? The island of fire and ice may be small, but it boasts diverse and magnificent landscapes. Wherever we travel, the most challenging part will be finding enough superlatives to describe the country.

The scenery changes every few kilometers – from pure glaciers to black lava fields and beaches, from green valleys to lunar plateaus, from crystal-clear and fresh waterfalls to scalding water bursting from the depths of the earth. Let’s head towards the North Atlantic to be enchanted by Europe’s most beautiful and powerful waterfalls, such as Seljalandsfoss or Gulfoss.

The adventure takes us to explore the settings of Game of Thrones, to traverse the Golden Circle, and to explore the mystical canyon of Fjaðrárgljúfur. We will also visit the fantastic Snæfellsnes Peninsula and soak in hot springs. Before bidding farewell to the country, we will dress appropriately to explore the sublime ice caves of Europe’s largest glacier and, of course, patiently await one of nature’s most beautiful spectacles: the Northern Lights.

This trip to Iceland will be accompanied by Papa-Léguas travel leader Jorge Duarte Estevão.

Dia 1 Flight city of origin - Reykjavik

We will arrive in Reykjavik.
Note: the arrival/departure dates may vary, depending on your origin city. If you have any doubts, contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification.

It is very likely that your flight will arrive late in Iceland, so there will only be time to travel from the airport and rest in a comfortable hotel. The tour leader will be waiting for you at the hotel, for those who are taking the group flights. If not, it's a good idea to arrange in advance what time you'll meet for breakfast the next day.

The transfer to the hotel will be at the traveler's expense.

Dia 2 Reykjavik - Blue Lagoon

After a good breakfast, we will start walking through the main points of Iceland's capital. We will certainly find stories and legends that will surprise us.

The capital of Iceland is a young and culturally active city. Among the many attractions not to be missed is Harpa, a concert hall with a glass facade in distinctive colors, inspired by Iceland's basalt landscape. Or also the Hallgrímskirkja, a church with a 74.5-meter rocket-shaped tower.

After lunch there are optional activities, such as visiting the National Museum of Iceland, the maritime museum, the art museum, or diving in the Blue Lagoon, the country's most visited geothermal spa.

Dia 3 Reykjavik - Golden Circle - Strokkur - Skógafoss

Three of Iceland's most inspiring natural landscapes are on this circuit called the Golden Circle.

From Reykjavík to the southern Icelandic highlands, we will walk trough the Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO), peek into the gorge where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America touch, and admire the Öxarárfoss waterfall. We proceed to the wonderful Gullfoss waterfall - which carries water more than 30 meters high. Before we get there, however, we will patiently wait 5 or 10 minutes until we see the Strokkur geyser gushing hot water several meters high.

We will go on a short trek to discover one of the least visited waterfalls in the country: Kvernufoss. This is a beautiful waterfall of 30 meters that is hidden in Iceland's landscape.

We end the day in a great place: the Skógafoss waterfall.

Dia 4 Dyrhólaey - Black Sand Beach - Fjaðrárgljúfur

A few kilometers away we will start to see one of the most fantastic glaciers in Iceland: Sólheimajökull. And it is there that we will take another short hike to see in loco the effects of climate change.

Before heading back to Vik, we'll take a short detour to the Dyrhólaey Peninsula where we'll start to see the black sandy beaches, before setting foot on the dark sands of Reynisfjara. Here we will try to understand the legends of Iceland folklore, one of which says that the basalt columns were trolls that pulled ships near the ocean to shore.

The Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon is an almost unknown place with virtually no visitors. The beauty and isolation make it a dream location for photographers and hikers. We won't be able to resist. From black to the purest white, we continue our journey to the Skaftafell National Park, where we will find Europe's largest glacier. This is another night where we will try to spot the Northern Lights, since we are far from light pollution.

We're going to explore an ice cave in the largest glacier on the European continent. With the help of a certified guide, we will walk on the glacier and explore the ice caves, which will leave us frozen with such natural beauty. We'll also take a glimpse of another waterfall, Svartifoss.

Still ecstatic from the icy adventure, we'll discover more of Iceland's natural wonders: the Fjallsárlón and Jokulsárlón lagoons.

At Seljalandsfoss, weather permitting, we will walk behind the water curtain and see the waterfall from a unique perspective.

We end the day in Reykjavik, but we still have more adventures in the coming days.

Dia 7 Reykjavik - Snæfellsnes - Northern lights

It is said that on clear days it is possible to see the Snæfellsnes Peninsula from Reykjavík. However, the beauty is such that it is best to go there.

After everything we have seen on this trip, you might think that Iceland will no longer surprise you. However, when we visit the Snæfellsnes Peninsula we will realize that perhaps the best was left for last. Snæfellsnes is a peninsula that extends from the west of Iceland and is nicknamed "miniature Iceland" due to the richness and diversity of natural resources present there.

At the heart of the Snæfellsjökull National Park, which we will have the opportunity to explore, is a subglacial volcano that towers over the landscape. There we will also find lava fields, historic villages, legends, and the country's most popular mountain (Kirkjufell) - it even appears in the Game of Thrones series. We also have strange rock formations like Gerðuberg, beaches and mountains to explore.

If the weather helps, this is also the part of Iceland where we will have a great chance of spotting the Northern Lights.

Is this trip for me?

The trip's itinerary has been carefully laid out by the tour leader to visit as much as possible, without being in a rush to visit places. This trip to Iceland is a generalist adventure and has no particular focus on hiking or photography. However, we may do some hiking and some travelers may take a little longer to capture the incredible Icelandic landscapes.

Who will guide this trip?

The tour leader is Jorge Duarte Estevão, who has visited Iceland several times. He is a very competent, good-natured tour leader who knows the country and has excellent feedback from travelers on previous trips. Sometimes we also have a local guide, that the tour leader hires, to share more specific knowledge of the history, culture or even geology.

What kind of accommodation do I stay in during this trip?

The accommodation chosen can range from well-located hotels to guesthouses. The rooms will be twin/double rooms with private bathrooms, whenever possible. In extraordinary cases when it is not possible to find double/twin rooms, we may use triple rooms.

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

We travel in a private van. This way we have greater schedule flexibility and can go where public transportation doesn't reach.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

Transfers are not included. The airport is about 31 miles from the city center. The cheapest option is the bus. The trip takes about an hour. If there are several travelers arriving in Iceland at the same time, it may be cheaper to travel by taxi. If in doubt, you can ask the tour leader about the best option and arrival times for the various members of the group.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

Papa-Léguas sends you a flight proposal. Note: the arrival/departure dates may vary, depending on your origin city. If you have any doubts, contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. After you receive the flight simulation, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas or another agency, or online.

Where do I meet the group?

The group meets at the hotel, at a time to be arranged with the tour leader.

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another person who is signed up. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Iceland?

The water in Iceland is of extremely high quality and you can drink tap water anywhere. Not only does this save money, but it avoids wasting plastic.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

Is insurance included in the land program?

It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?

The necessary documentation may vary, depending on your nationality, the country of origin and the places you will travel to. For further information, consult the relevant embassy websites or contact Papa-Léguas.

What equipment is essential for this trip?

Regarding clothing, the most important thing is to be prepared for all seasons at any time of the year. It is important, above all, to dress in layers, take caps, gloves, polar coats, warm-up pants, raincoat and windbreaker, hiking boots or sneakers (preferably waterproof), shorts or a bathing suit (for the hot springs).

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?

Health restrictions may vary, depending on various factors, such as your country of origin. We recommend scheduling a Travel Medicine consultation before your trip. For further information, consult the websites of relevant agencies or contact Papa-Léguas.

How is the access to electricity, Wi-Fi and communications?

No power adapter is required. Wi-Fi is available in most hotels and restaurants. In some areas there may not be internet or mobile network coverage. In Iceland the use of roaming is usually authorized by the Portuguese operators (although sometimes with limits on internet traffic), so it is advisable to consult your contract or contact your mobile operator. A SIM card can also be purchased from one of the local operators.

Other relevant information:

Space is tight in the private van we use, so we ask for restraint in the amount of luggage. We ask that only one item of luggage be used, with as little weight as possible, and one personal item (small backpack, computer bag, etc). In addition, it is likely that at times you will need to drag your equipment several meters through snow and ice (depending on the time of year). In Iceland, supermarkets do not sell alcohol. There are stores just for that, called Vínbúðin.

Why is this trip "CLASSIC"?

These are trips that balance the comfort that our travelers are used to with memorable experiences in the four corners of the planet. On a journey of cultural discovery in Japan, accompanied by a travel leader from Papa-Léguas, or on a trekking in Slovenia, accompanied by local guides, CLASSIC trips are those that provide the best of both worlds – a spirit of discovery and adventure and a good bed at the end of the day.
